Ahmadiyya Holds Annual Convention In UK
Alton (United Kingdom), Aug 3, GNA - The 52nd Annual Convention of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community also known as Jalsa Salana, is scheduled from August 3 to August 5, in the United Kingdom.
The Convention seeks to increase religious knowledge and promote a sense of peace and brotherhood among Ahmadi Muslim.
As part of the preparation towards a successful convention, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Worldwide Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, has inspected the venue for the Jalsa Salana.
During the inspection, the Spiritual Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community visited the various departments tasked with organising and running the three-day event.
His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih V, the fifth successor of the Promised Messiah was briefed on the arrangements as he inspected the site.
Later, His Holiness directly addressed many of the 5,000 volunteer workers and advised them to conduct their duties with diligence and to be regular to prayer.
He advised them to be friendly and give warm reception at all times and also reiterated the importance of ensuring that none of the local people in Alton, had any cause of complaint from any Ahmadi Muslims.
His Holiness mentioned that a few neighbours in the Fazl Mosque area had complained that Ahmadi Muslims had partially blocked their driveways when visiting the Mosque.
He said it was completely wrong to cause any form of discomfort to one's neighbours and such complaints had proven a source of great embarrassment to him personally.
He reiterated the importance of prayer and the worship of God Almighty.
'During these days it is essential that we remain focused on prayer as all of our success is based upon prayer. Our tasks and our mission can only be fulfilled through the Grace of Allah alone.
'May Allah the Almighty enable every volunteer to fulfil his or her duties in the best possible way,' he added.
Earlier, His Holiness also inspected Jalsa Salana arrangements made at the Baitul Futuh Mosque in London and the premises of Jamia Ahmadiyya UK in Haslemere.
